    I am a broke college graduate with student loans but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. It looks like they are just getting even more pricey now though so ill probably sit this one out. Ill check again at like 12-1

    Yeah, same here. If I was going to go, it would probably be Wednesday anyway; going to night games >>> going to day games (in my opinion).

    So do we want them to win on Friday so we can sell them and directly get our money back for Game #6? Or just not even have to bother with it and let the Flyers keep it for next year?

    Question, how do I download my ticket to my phone? Do I just take a picture of it? Never done this before.

    Glad I’m going to this one. Going for less than face value.

    Sold my pair for a whopping $12 profit.

    Glad I sold them before they plummeted today.

    Yea that’s still good considering. I’m taking the wife to her first ever playoff game. She will shocked at the difference.

    Just managed to get a pair of season tickets in section 215 row 2. Shocked I was able to get so low without being a season ticket holder last year. Don’t know if they gave me a little preference because I was a season ticket holder two years ago, but either way I’m pumped.

    I go to most of the games either way, but the resale value on these has to be one of the best in the building (compared to the price).

    She was probably shocked at how terrible the Flyers are.

    If you’re getting tickets based on resale, I would think a lot harder about it. Hopefully the renovations will be a draw.

    I’m not under the impression that every seat is being moved in the second level - just those that need moved to make room for the renovations. Don’t believe these seats will be any different than they were last season.

    He means that if you’re buying them with the hopes to resell them and make most of your money back at times, you should think long and hard.

    Then mentioned hoping the renovations may help a little bit with resale value.

    I can say that I sold 36 of the 44 games this year (not counting preseason but counting playoffs) and I took a $250 hit this year.

    My seats were in row 4 and on the aisle so you could say they had a bit of a "premium" on them.

    Why do you have Season Tickets if you sell so many, you may ask? I got married this year in November so had to try and cut as many corners as possible.

    That’s not bad at all. I prob took around 3k hit this year. A lot of factors went into that that can’t be as bad next year. If that happens again obviously I’m out.

    Yikes. I thought my last full season taking a 800$ hit was bad(16-17). I had broke even the previous year while going to 18 games.. this year I just ended up getting the weekend partial and it worked out that I paid around the same amount and never had to worry about selling. But next year I'm just going to play the secondary market when I want to go to games. 8 of my 11 games this year I could have went on stub hub and found cheaper tickets and better seats so that's what I'm doing for the foreseeable future. Until the team is a contender again(hakstol/hextall gone) you can't rely on the resale market to cover the cost of season tickets. It's an awful awful investment.

    I just noticed that select-a-seat was last week. Glad I got a heads up. Great service!

    For a multi-thousand dollar investment after forcing me to have my seats moved (and previously talking to my rep who said he would give me a heads up), I expect, like, actual service. Emails are for downloads and offers.
